Folly Beach, Charleston, South Carolina, USA

Folly Beach is about 15 minutes from downtown Charleston and proclaims itself as the "edge of America."  My initial impression is that it is a funky, relaxed, and hip beach town.  By comparison, Isle of Palms seems more reserved but still very attractive in its sophistication.  Both locations offers gazillions of vacation rental properties and I'm only seeing the towns in the dead of  winter - that is, the South Carolina version of winter - I suspect both towns are busy crowded in the summertime.

The public pier for fishing and strolling - and it's FREE!

Dining outdoors in January in short sleeves is always a happy sight.

Downtown Folly Beach with hints of Abbey Road - sort of.......

This way-cool doorway is the entrance to a yummy downtown Mexican restaurant.

These gnarled and weather beaten skeletons are at the north end of the island in the Lighthouse Inlet Heritage Preserve. The "bone yard" tree trunks are dried and bleached by the sun, wind, and salt.  Morris Lighthouse is in the background offshore.

This Van Gogh-looking image is actually the swirls of knots in the wood in a tree in the bone yard at the beach.
